Other World Computing is offering a new line of solid state disk upgrades for the MacBook Air. The company will sell you a 180GB, 240GB, 360GB, or 480GB disk, with the top of the line model offering almost twice as much storage as you can get with a standard 13 inch MacBook Air. Unfortunately the 480GB SSD also costs about as much as the most expensive MacBook Air.
OWC is selling the 480GB Mercury Aura Pro Express SSD for $1580. Apple sells a 13 inch MacBook Air with a 256GB SSD for $1599. You can decide whether it makes more sense to pay for additional storage or just buy a new laptop to use in case you run out of space.
Fortunately the lower capacity SSDs from OWC are a bit cheaper, running $448 for the 180GB model, $580 for 240GB, and $1180 for 360GB.
The company doesn’t actually perform the upgrade for you, but when you buy a MacBook Air upgrade kit, you also get the tools needed to perform the upgrade yourself.
